“Their rock star status…is well deserved. Their classically honed technique mixed with grit and all out passionate attack transfixes the audience...”  That is how The Sarasota Herald Tribune described SYBARITE5, classical music’s most dynamic new music group.  Comprised of Sami Merdinian and Sarah Whitney, violins; Angela Pickett, viola; Laura Metcalf, cello; and Louis Levitt, bass, SYBARITE5 has taken audiences by storm all across the US, forever changing the perception of chamber music performance. 

Highlights of recent seasons have included performances in 43 states and counting, from the Library of Congress and St. Paul’s Schubert Club to Anchorage Concert Association and Sun Valley Center for the Arts, as well as concerts in their home of New York City at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, National Sawdust, the Apple Store and the 92nd Street Y.

In 2018 SYBARITE5 premiered a new version of their most popular touring program Everything in its Right Place with full orchestra. Recently the quintet gave the world premiere of BEATBOX–the very first concerto for string quintet and orchestra–written by acclaimed American composer Dan Visconti. sybarite5.org
